Sending You Birthday Wishes!

Happy Hump Day (Wednesday), y'all!! Hope everyone is staying cool! It has been one of the hottest summers we have had since I have lived in FL. I grew up in N. TX, and it was often over 100 degrees, but the humidity was not as high.

This little Maggy of mine had not seen any ink in a while, so I decided to give her some love! Gosh, I have so many that have not seen any ink! I need to get busy inkin' them up!This is Tilda with Flowing Hair. I could not wait to use my new Memory Box Gossamer DP! I used some PTI cardstock and a distressing tool and distressed all of the edges of the cardstock and DP. I layered 2 Primas for the floral embellishment. For the hydrangea, I airbrushed it with my Copic ABS and some YG93 Copic Marker. I added some pearls around the rectangle as another accent. I also used a floral branch punch, an EK Success Swirl punch and some white fabric covered floral wire for the swirly-things (availale at craft stores in floral section) to complete the embellishment.I colored Tilda with my Copics and cut her out. It is hard to tell in this picture, but I added some clear Stickles to her basket of flowers and to the purple Prima.

Here are the colors I used to color Tilda:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20

Clothes & Flowers: RV0000, RV91, RV93, RV95

Hair: E50, E53, E55, E59

Basket & Shoes: E31, E33, E35, E37, YG91, YG93, YG95,



Stamps - Tilda with Flowing Hair (Magnolia Stamps), sentiment (PTI)

Paper - PTI cardstock, Memory Box Gossamer DP

Ink - Memento, Copics

Accessories - Stickles, Copic ABS, ATG Gun, Floral branch punch, Distressing Tool, Primas, Pearls, EK Success Swirl Punch, White Fabric Covered Floral Wire


Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a creative day!

First off - I LOVE the color combination - so soft and pretty. I like the way you layered everything and the distressing just adds a nice touch. The sketch is wonderful as well and I love your floral 'bouquet'. I HAVE to get that branch punch - I have been seeing those everywhere on cards!! A nice added touch. TFS
